KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs signed linebacker JoJo Dickson to the practice squad, according to Tuesday’s NFL Transactions report.

Dickson replaces linebacker Ja’Gared Davis, who signed a free-agent contract with the Washington Redskins’ active 53-man roster.

The 6-1, 245-pound Dickson originally entered the NFL in 2011 as an undrafted free agent out of Idaho with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Dickson, a native of Wailuku, Hawaii, spent time with the Cleveland Browns in 2012 before signing with the New York Jets’ practice squad in December 2012.

The Jets signed Dickson to a reserve/future deal in January 2013 before waiving him in August 2013.

The Arizona Cardinals signed Dickson to its practice squad in November 2013 and he spent the 2014 offseason with Arizona before being waived in late August.

The Chiefs current 10-man practice squad consists of Dickson, tight end Brandon Barden, wide receiver Armon Binns, defensive tackle Hebron Fangupo, tackle Curits Feight, guard Ricky Henry, cornerback Deji Olatoye, tight end Adam Schiltz, wide receiver Fred Williams and defensive lineman Jerel Worthy.
